Sous chef Aimee Tierney has the perfect recipe for the perfect life: marry her childhood sweetheart, raise a family, and buy out her parents' restaurant. But when her fiancé, James Donato, vanishes in a boating accident, her well-baked future is swept out to sea. Instead of walking down the aisle on their wedding day, Aimee is at James's funeral - a funeral that leaves her more unsettled than at peace.
As Aimee struggles to reconstruct her life, she delves deeper into James's disappearance. What she uncovers is an ocean of secrets that make her question everything about the life they built together. And just below the surface is a truth that may set Aimee free...or shatter her forever.
A luminous debut with unexpected twists, Everything We Keep explores the devastation of loss, the euphoria of finding love again, and the pulse-racing repercussions of discovering the truth about the ones we hold dear and the lengths they will go to protect us.

Can't believe I actually listened to the whole thing. The premise is interesting, but the story dragged and I did not like the epilogue at all.
"Plot Slightly Incredulous"
Was a bit too contrived and melodramatic to suit my tastes. I listened to the end just out of curiosity. I was entertained, though.
"A good read"
The book kept my attention throughout with a storyline that draws ypu in even though it could be frustrating at times. The ending was thought-provoking and let's the story continue in your imagination.
"holds steady interest, but a little far fetched"
This book was entertaining and interesting but I thought the twists were so unlikely. Maybe if there was a little more integration of background stories and character development throughout it would've helped credibility. I liked the book because I got into it right away.
While the narrator did a great job with the material she was given, the writing in this book is atrocious. The book is plagued with poor grammar, nonsensical plot twists, and incomplete character development. It was painful to listen to because of the bad writing. I am thankful that I purchased this audio book at a discount because I had selected the book as my Kindle First pick for the month. However, I am very disappointed if this is the quality of work Amazon is promoting through it's Kindle First program.
Don't know how this got good review. It was so slow ad predictable. Narrators different voices were terrible. Very disappointed.
"Great story, but...."
This was a great story, but the narrator was horrible. She was way to automated.
"Romance mystery novel- flat"
I had no idea this was in the romance genre. Flat story, poorly written. Not literature.
"Weak, thin, ok for romantic young adults"
I was disappointed in this previously well reviewed book. I was also disappointed in the readers mispronunciation of several words. The story will most likely appeal to young romantic readers. Ah well!
I listened to this book on Audible through its end. It is written like a lifetime movie, something I'm not really into. If you like that stuff then you'd probably enjoy it more than me.
